Revue Universitas začala svou existenci v roce 1968 (1. číslo je datováno do března) a ukončila v roce 2017 (poslední číslo vyšlo v dubnu). Její vznik je spjat mj. se jménem prof. (tehdy ještě doc.) Lubomíra Nového, který se podílel na přípravě její koncepce. Opravňovalo ho k tomu i to, že byl v letech 1958-1967 předsedou redakční rady časopisu "U". Úkolem Universitas podle záměru redakce mělo být informovat o nejdůležitějších událostech na univerzitě, o publikační činnosti, důležitých konferencích, kontaktech se zahraničím aj. Vedle tohoto informačního cíle měla Universitas věnovat důležitou část každého čísla teoretickým studiím, které mají vztah k interdisciplinárním a metavědeckým problémům a k sociologii a dějinám vědy. (Výtah ze shrnutí programového článku 1968/1).
